Spring is nearly here (which I know we have been wishing and hoping for for a mighty long time now but the weather peeps are now assuring us that the wait is nearly over). Knitting never stops here at Sitting Knitting obviously but thoughts definitely change to light summer jumpers and portable projects such as socks.

Whatever your thoughts are for your warm weather project, I’m confident we’ll have you covered so I look forward to seeing you in the shop or helping you online very soon.

  • Laetitia S

    I bought indie socks yarn and West Yorkshire Spinners yarn online. The shop owner was super helpful. The delivery was quick, good packaging and eco friendly with a personal thank you message with the delivery order. I was very pleased.

  • Andy Everett

    Looked up on line to visit while in the area. Charming little building tucked away from the main road,. The owner was pleasant and helpful. Good stock of yarn. Wish it was nearer to do some of the classes.

  • Lucy Horton
